Citizenship can be a central category for rebuilding and renewing democracy, since it best compounds a liberal recognition of the primacy of individual rights with a recognition of the Republican duties generated by belonging to a political community. How to combine, however, the universalizing dynamics of individual rights with the particularistic dynamics typical of the responsibility-bond of communitarian traditions? To get out of this divarication, it may be useful to resort to a notion of community belonging as a factor of inclusive and emancipatory universalization, not of exclusive and regressive particularism. This notion finds one of its strongest ideal and historical expressions in Christian ecclesiality. In this framework, the principle of inclusion proves to be a highly demanding normative criterion of scrutiny of the legitimacy of the foundational values of historical communities, on the basis of their consistency with this social function of community belonging.
